Maisie Williams Leaned Into Punk-Rock Style for Her

You may know Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones, but for her latest television project, the actor shed Arya Stark’s warrior cloaks in favor of a punk-rock wardrobe. Williams is starring in FX’s six-episode limited series Pistol, premiering today, which explores the rise and crash of the Sex Pistols—the English band who ignited a counterculture movement in 1970s London. (The show, directed by Danny Boyle, is based on the memoir Lonely Boy from real-life Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones.) “I was aware of the Sex Pistols and the punk movement’s impact at the time, but I didn’t realize how the fashion, music, and art all further triggered the movement,” Williams tells . “It was just a real scene in London, and it was like a small group of people that created that revolution.”
